Walking into the gymnasium at Cambridge Christian for the Class A, District 10 semifinal Tuesday, playoff intensity was in the air.
Cambridge Christian took on Seffner Christian in the first match and won the first game easily. Seffner came roaring back in the second game with help from its outside hitters.
The third game was all about senior outside hitter Katelyn Wolcott, who accounted for eight points and had the winning serve.
Despite a near scare by Seffner in the fourth game, Cambridge was able to pull away after being tied at 10 to win the match.
Now Cambridge waited on the Bayshore Christian-Berean Academy matchup to see who it would play in the next round.
The first two games displayed the dominating abilities of Bayshore junior middle hitter Valencia King and sophomore outside hitter Gabby Fernandez.
Bayshore was able to hold Berean to fewer than 10 points in each of the first two games, yet the Faith Warriors were finally tested in the third.
After being tied 6-6 to start the game, in what was a back-and-forth exchange of sloppiness, Bayshore pulled away for the win and never looked back by setting up perfect spikes and putting up crucial blocks for the sweep.
